When Is Eid Al Adha?
Eid Al Adha is set to take place on Saturday, July 9th, 2022. The Eid is four days long and will continue until July 13th, 2022.
What Is Eid Al Adha?
Al Adha translates to “feast of the sacrifice.”
Eid Al Adha commemorates prophet Ibrahim’s test from Allah swt. He was tried by God to sacrifice his own son Ismail on top of Mount Arafat. He obeyed, but from God’s mercy Ismail was protected. Instead a lamb was sent for sacrifice from God which is why the tradition of sacrificing lamb and feeding it to the poor continues today.
The Tradition of Wearing New Clothes on Eid Al Adha
Yes, Eid is an excuse to buy new Eid outfits, or four. We normally don’t support overconsumption here at AMEERA, but in the case of Eid wearing new clothes is tradition. It is a day celebrating our creator, so it is only fair that we dress our absolute best.
It is in fact a Sunnah to wear new clothes for Eid. If new isn’t the way to go anything fresh, and special will do.

Eid outfits are the time to go all out. It is said that the new outfits will emit a sense of joy and create a special feeling around Eid.
Below are some Eid outfits you can purchase or recreate using what you have at home just in time for Eid Al Adha:

This style is made of 100% silk charmeuse. We love it because it is actually machine washable. The high neck adds an elegant touch. Waterfall sleeves add a swoosh of drama and length to the silhouette which is finished with a classic oversized aline fit.
